In impress file, whenever I move my mouse pointer over the text box the drag cursor (hand pan) comes automatically, is there any way how to disable this drag cursor (hand pan), so that I can only see the mouse pointer? What is the keyboard shortcut to enable the drag cursor (hand pan) whenever I need it at significant time? Other times, I don't want it to be displayed on the screen everytime. This drag cursor is used to move the text box around the slide. After saving a file in .pptx format, whenever the mouse pointer is moved over the first letter of the sentence in the text box, it automatically switches from pointer to drag cursor which should not happen, as we are moving it over the text it should change immediately to edit cursor which is not happening. I have to move the mouse pointer over the middle of the sentence and then that edit cursor shows up.

Choose menu Tools - Options… - LibreOffice Impress- General, and check Allow quick editing and Only text area selectable.
